Dedicated to helping the Spanish-speaking population of Georgia
Advocating for the Latino Community
At ALAS, we are dedicated to advocating for and assisting members of the Spanish-speaking and Latino communities in Georgia. With a focus on mental health, in particular, ALAS aims to address the growing mental health treatment disparities in the Spanish-speaking community.
Improving lives, today and tomorrow
We do more than mental health. We offer community outreach programs to advocate for parents and children and helping the next generation of young people. We offer community workshops that focus on parenting, educational rights, and education on general health and wellness.
